Hey, i was just wondering how a minor chord looks like? coz you know, a major chord has the tonica in the bass, with the third and the fifth "on top" of the tonica. Isn't the minor chord the same except for its fifth being lowered or something?

The third is lowered by a half step, thus making it a minor third.

The simplest way to put it... lower the third a half step creating a minor third. So you have the root, minor third, fifth. There are more spellings to this but I think this is what you mean.

Yes, a minor chord formula is 1, b3, 5, so depending on the key signature you may need to adda flat sign.. but in most cases the flat 3rd will be in the scale so it will look similiar to the major chord in notation.

Ok, I'm sorry for bumping the thread, but I was kinda desperate coz i gotta go to bed pretty soon and my music teacher is a mean son of a bitch.

But thanks alot

For example if you're in the key of C major.. and you want to put an A minor chord (ACE), the flat third C is obviously in the key and does not occur as an accidental, but in comparison to the A major scale, the C# has be lwoered a semitone.
